That dealer is a stealer. Oil changes at dealerships are an opportunity for the lube dude to look around your truck to find high profit, unnecessary repairs. I am elated that you declined the dealer offer to get a second opinion from us. Lube dude is under pressure from management to up the profit on oil changes. Lube dude gets a spiff if they sold you on the glazed rotor BS.
Glazed rotors are normal and nothing to worry about.
I have not yet pulled the wheels on my truck but disc brake repair is usually the same on most vehicles.
1. Remove wheel
2. Remove caliper
3. Remove rotor from hub
Reinstall in reverse.
